Sky Meadow Sampler

Biker and Mrs. Buck's good friends, Brad and Polly Oliver, have extended many invitations to be their guest in Ligonier, PA at their Sky Meadow Farm. Finally, the opportunity to accept their invitation arose for BB to stay here for his Pennsylvania  ride.

Farmer Brad proves the point that Sky Meadow really IS a farm.

Just about every cyclist on the planet has heard of the Great Allegheny Passage. From the get go, this was to be the site of BB's PA ride.
Brad and BB rode together from Ohiopyle to Confluence and back, 11 miles each way.
Classic R2T route. Hillsides of stone are carved out to create space for the tracks.
High point on our route, about 150 ft. above the river.
Trestles nearby the trail are still in use.
Glorious scenes from the saddle.
BB added a few miles by continuing on from Ohiopyle to Connellsville. Brad was kind enough to drive there and wait to pick up the Buckster.

Two dinner parties and an educational, if not jaw dropping, tour of the unbelievable Rolling Rock Country Club later, BB said adieu to Sky Meadow and pushed on to Cincinnati.

Mahalo, Brad and Polly for such a delightful time on the Farm!
